This collection focus on the most important elements of the emotion of the narcissus as a person. The inspiration began with the ancient Greek myth of Narcissus and Echo which describes the self-love and aloofness as a curse. After that, the whole concept went to overviewing the stages of feelings that a narcissist goes through the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of an idealized self-image.

Narcissus collection includes three important characteristics of the style – garments are made of distinctive rich fabrics with many details, there is a lot of skin revealing and the model’s mouths are a ways hidden, either by gas masks or huge zippers.
The hidden mouths are showing the symbolic meaning of how narcissists are not allowing others to have a voice. The collection shows some sort of exhibitionism – extravagant behavior that is intended to attract attention to oneself.

The collection includes materials sponsored by FADA TESSUTI

I am 22 years old girl, born in Sliven, Bulgaria but 10 years ago I moved to the capital of Bulgaria. There I studied in a Language High school with English and Spanish languages. Beside that I started to develop more my hobby to sketch clothes and made a few personal collections without knowing the professional technical part.

I chose NABA because I wanted to learn how to realize my drawings and I gained a lot in terms of knowledge, a lot more than I expected.
